KENYA: Arts & Music Volunteer Project

Kenya Arts and Music Volunteer Project
Kenya Arts and Music Volunteer Project

Go Volunteer Africa is striving to enhance understanding and awareness of the diverse world to the children and youth of Kenya through arts and music project. Go Volunteer Africa is offering meaningful volunteering opportunities in Kenya for arts lovers and this project will give you an opportunity to spend your vacation teaching music, dance, drama or teaching arts.

If you are passionate about music, dance and drama, then consider sharing your talents on a volunteer project in Kenya. Share your passion, talent, creativity for music, dance and drama by volunteering with young people in Kenya. With Go Volunteer Africa, you’ll be able to positively impact local communities in Kenya while immersing yourself in the vibrant local cultures.


  • Contribute your musical expertise to children in a community with great needs
  • Build relationships with local Kenyans and other volunteers
  • Explore one of the most beautiful countries on the planet with our volunteer travel support
  • Immerse yourself in the diverse culture of one of East Africa’s most interesting and thrilling countries

You could be using arts and music as a therapy to help children and youth who are abused and under stress or teach music and dance to children and youth to help them develop their awareness and appreciation of music, and learn how to play a musical instruments. Grow personally and artistically as you help empower local communities in this beautiful country!


Volunteers interested in teaching performing Arts and music in Kenya, can participate in the project during their summer vacation, gap year or career break, or just as a volunteering vacation. This is a great opportunity to learn about music, drama, art and dance in different cultures and languages and be inspired!

Go Volunteer Africa has setup this project at local children and youth centres across Kenya. We also collaborate with schools in the local areas.  A volunteer in this project can choose to combine this project with another volunteer project, like teaching, games and sports or get involved in community social services projects.

You can teach children various instruments like the piano, cello and guitar etc. The children are aged between 8 and 19. It is therefore important that volunteers be enthusiastic about music and able to inspire the children to develop both theoretical and practical musical knowledge and skills.

Through this Kenya arts and music volunteer project, a volunteer can utilize arts to address social issues and enable children to express their frustrations and confusions – and perhaps help them to understand and learn to cope with unwelcome situations. Art, Dance, Music or Drama help teach children life skills, communication and socializing skills. And it’s fun!

Volunteering at this music and dance volunteer project in Kenya will offer you a way to empower others and yourself. You will truly help people unleash their talents, realize dreams, and/or give them a hobby to enjoy for a lifetime.
